PACA Annual Meeting

It's late Friday night in Alexandria, Virginia and from my nicely upgraded room on the 24th floor I can see the Capital and the Washington Monument. But I'm not here to sightsee. Tonight was the opening reception of the PACA (Picture Agency Council of America) annual meeting.I first joined PACA when we could all meet at a small table in a Chinese restaurant in New York City. Since then PACA's membership has grown to embrace all members of the stock photography world. Dreamstime became one of the... continue reading

Believing in the unbelievable

In this world we hold strength.With strength we consume fire.Fire builds on our thoughts.Our thoughts produce that which it made.That which is made can turn out differently in every one of us.Some come by evil, some come by pure love.Stories bring out what is hidden deep.Fairytales are told in place of what is real.Made from evil, birthed by fire.Goes out with pure love anddies like ashes as the wind makes way.Within this wind lives may fade.Yet this world cycles all which... continue reading

Simple is not easy

“Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple.” – Steve JobsNo, this is not going to be a blog about sayings by the late Steve Jobs.It just happens to reflect very well the reaction I had (eventually) upon seeing a sample of photographs taken by Paul Caponigro.The pictures I was looking at were mostly still life or landscapes, and I am ashamed to say that upon a superficial glance, I was inclined to dismiss them as simple shots... continue reading

Provocations of Dorothy Lange

“While there is perhaps a province in which the photograph can tell us nothing more than what we see with our own eyes, there is another in which it proves to us how little our eyes permit us to see.”I am simply awe struck by that thought.Read it again, please and then read the next quote.“This benefit of seeing...can come only if you pause a while, extricate yourself from the maddening mob of quick impressions ceaselessly battering our lives, and look thoughtfully at a quiet image.... continue reading

Today to open the film last year, found that these can be used for EDITORIAL photos.Although the EDITORIAL film sales direction is very narrow, but not better than nothing.Not afraid of the film is less,Not afraid to pass, however,Not afraid of slow sales.

Lessons from a Newbie

Last weekend I was lucky enough to get ahold of some tickets to a Minnesota Timberwolves games (professional basketball). Our group was sitting in the third row which was only a could of feet/meters away from the action. I only brought my 17-40L lens on my 7D because I assumed that would be close enough, which it was for the most part.About 1/2 way through the game I got a tap on my shoulder. It was a lady who said she had the same camera as me (Canon 7D) and was wondering what settings I was... continue reading
